Carolina Log Center designs and builds high performance homes that save our clients significant money on utilities while increasing their comfort year round. Through our sister company, Carolina Diversified Builders, we are a ENERGY STAR Partner and have been since 2008.
Homes designed and built by Carolina Log Center that earn the ENERGY STAR must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. E.P.A. ENERGY STAR qualified homes are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC). ENERGY STAR qualified homes can include a variety of energy-efficient features, such as
1) effective insulation
2) high performance windows
3) tight construction and ducts
4) efficient heating and cooling equipment
5) ENERGY STAR qualified lighting and appliances.
Buying a new home is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make. By choosing one that has earned the government’s trusted ENERGY STAR label, you can have the house of your dreams and enjoy peace of mind of lower operating costs. With ENERGY STAR, you know you’re making the right decision—for your wallet, for your family, and for the environment—bringing these important benefits:
Lower Utility Bills
By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR qualified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost.
In ENERGY STAR qualified homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment.
The energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, ENERGY STAR qualified homes help to prevent air pollution—an added benefit for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer looking for “green” choices.
